Odd size tyres !!

Post by roj48 »

Further to my tribulations with the spare - I now discover that the rear tyres are bigger than the front. 205/50R/15 rear and 185/55/15 front. Previous owner getting ideas of grandeur? Is this a good idea....or not?

They have been changed - but only a front or a rear each time - so I didn't notice the different sizes.
